    One question you may want to ask is if it is the Catalytic or Non Catalytic Model.

    for some reason this stove has beed partly dissesembled Meaning there is quite a bit more involved then fastening it back together. All refactory cement will have to be scraped oun and replaced with new cement if one takes the top off all side pieces joints have been weakened and probably need to be re cemented the top ancors the side pieces from shifting New gackets will hqave to be installed so the old ones will require removing and scraping out all the old gasket cement I am talking about the gaskets like the flue collar that are tightened in place once. Once the collar is removed so is the gasket seating. It is possible this stove may need a total rebuild. Is that bad no if the price is right. and if you have the knowledge to do and are willing to do so. If the basic stove is of sound parts and they were not warped, then this is great canidate for rebuilding. I would expect the unexpected, meaning even the normal door and glass gaskets probably will need replacing. If it has been opperated correctly one year, then after the rebuild you would have a real nice stove. Depends on wath it sells for
